upgrade IPS moudle on ASA to 6.0.3

I upgraded the ips module ASA-SSM-20 on the ASA from 5.x to 6.0.3 lately. The ASA are setup as active/standby. i upgraded both modules successfully on each ASA. After the upgrade, i notice the ASA failover to the other partner about 10 times for the past day, particularly when traffic was high. Before the upgrade, i don't have this problem. Anyone run into this problem before, and any idea? thanks.

Re: upgrade IPS moudle on ASA to 6.0.3

Hi, I have the same problem by one our customer. I would like to compare my and your sw versions? We are using Cisco ASA ver 7.0.7GD, I tested it also on versions 7.2.2 and 7.2.3 the result is the same! Do you use also the IPS Firmware version: 1.0(11)2, Software version: 6.0(3)E1? Please could you write out from configuration "show failover state", do you see there also in the field "Last Failure Reason" = IPS Card Failure in both unit? I thing there should be some problem with the new IPS software! If you wish contact me!

Best regards
